You have the option of studying this module at two academic levels. Level 6 is at degree and level 7 at Masters. The content and the assignment criteria is the same for both academic levels. What differs is the academic depth of the assignment, which will follow the level 7 assessment criteria. The principles of neonatal care are equally important whilst caring for a neonate in intensive care.
It is important to remember that this is a nursing module and at the end of this study period, you will have increased your knowledge and clinical skills in this area. This will require more than attendance at the study day. To be successful at degree level requires your commitment to be an active learner. This will entail additional reading and a questioning attitude whilst meeting the clinical learning outcomes for this module.
Applicants must be post-registration staff working in a Special Care Baby Unit/Neonatal Unit.
